I was told by Bowers and Alex Oriakhi this season that the freshman on the roster we need to most watch out for in the future is the slender Jankovic.
7) Does Tuesday’s news have any bearing on the future of Tiger point guard Phil Pressey?
Pressey’s role on the team and the playing time he would get next year have nothing to do with whether or not Negus Webster-Chan or Dominique Bull is able to contribute.
*By the way, my gut tells me Pressey is leaving. It only takes ONE team to give him a draft grade he wants to hear, and it only takes one of the 30 teams in the NBA to like him enough to pick him. My bet is that some GM out there thinks Pressey is more consistent than he showed this season. He had the ball in his hands about 98 percent of the time he was on the floor because there were no other alternatives on the roster. Plus, Pressey’s passing ability will only be enhanced in the NBA by the better athletes and finishers catching the ball on the other end.
